This is my last weekday off till Labor Day, since I return to work from my latest furlough on Monday. I spent a good part of the day running here and there to research an article I hope to write for Mohawk Valley Living magazine. I thought I could write a whole blog post about my gyrations. I have a number of pictures I can share. However, as the evening wears on, I feel increasingly less inclined to do so.
Then again, it is Lame Post Friday. How about if I share some of the pictures but do not worry if there are not as many words. Oh, who am I kidding? Once I start sharing the pictures, I ought to come up with plenty of words.
My first stop was the Oneida County History Center in Utica. They were very helpful. While there, I realized that some of the pottery I was researching was on display at Fountain Elms, part of Munson Williams Proctor Institute. Accordingly, I headed back down Genessee Street.
I did not stay there long, although I was tempted to grab a bite at their Cafe. Next time, I hope! Instead, I took a drive to Little Falls, to Showcase Antiques. First I did stop for a bite at Ann Street Deli. I was hungry and needed a pick-me-up!
I found the particular display I was looking for and had a delightful conversation with one of the owners. I also looked all around the shop and took a few pictures unrelated to my project at hand.
It was a productive and enjoyable day. Now I have a lot more writing to do. It should be fun. In the meantime, Happy Friday, everyone!
